   Was in the military museum in Kelowna a couple weeks back and was tickled to see my Sabre Mk 2 conversion dio in a really nice Canadair Sabre display.

Had donated it quite some time ago and the curator procured a lovely acrylic cover for the diorama..completely forgotten about it.  But was just floored to see what they had done.

 It sits in a Sabre Bang seat (very old,out of a Mk IV) with helmet et all.  took a couple pics with the cell phone..

The model is where it belongs, I saw it in person and it is a little gem, outstanding / museum quality replica of Canadian Sabre. Good for you William, well deserved recognition of your work. :thumbsup:

Hugs and Sissies :)

On a side note: Did you guys know that William designed many masters for Sabres and Shooting star derivates , I believe many are still carried by AMS.
